The Taleoken this year commemorates the fiftieth anniversary
of Ken High. After We had been in school a few Weeks, there came
an announcement over the public address system stating that any
senior Wishing to become a member of the Taleoken Staff was to
hand in his or her name to Miss Boucher. This was the Hrst step
forward in the publishing of the Taleoken.
The members of the staff then met in an attempt to choose an
appropriate cover for the year book. After long arguments and
much voting they arrived at the decision of a gold cover in accord-
ance With the golden anniversary. Then there was the task of se-
curing advertisements. Each member was given the names of three
or four business establishments and it was his job to secure from
each one a pledge to support the Taleoken. This Was done success-
fully by the good salesmanship of the members.
Senior names were then handed out for Write-ups. This caused
much excitement and many questions to Hnd out Who was Writing
up Whom. The typists were now kept very busy.

by the staff.
There was much planning on the setup of the book and the buildin of th
th ' '
eme and deciding what went best on each page. Names were to be Put in
alphabetical order and pictures identified and a little written about each informal
picture. The activities, classes, and athletic sections were then to be written and
every one worked as long and hard as possible to have them complete in inform-
ation. We then anxiously awaited the return of the plates from the engraver so
that we could write the informal captions. Having everything written and the
pictures planned on the pages, the Taleoken was then sent to the printer U on
t e return, there were many long hours spent on proof reading.
Then, on the evening before the Taleolcen is to be presented to the student
o en Hi, a banquet is held for the members of the Taleok S ff
en ta and as a
fitting close for their diligent work they are given a preview of the printed Taleolcen.

Within sight of the present Ken Hi build-
ing, New Kensington High School came into
existence in a small room in the Walnut Street
building in September, 1899, when sixteen students
reported for high school work. One of those
students was Miss Irene Hawlc, a recently retired
Ken Hi teacher to whom we are indebted for many
facts and interesting experiences of those early
days. The first teacher was Mr. Harry Piper, suc-
ceeded very soon by Miss Mary Ashe, later Mrs.
W. R. Alter, as principal. She was the instigating
force in having the high school properly recog-
nized by the State Department of Education so
that, before the end of the year 1899-1900, the
high school was properly accredited with a two
year academic course. In May, 1901, the first class
was graduated. In 1904, a three year course of
study was adoptedg consequently, a larger enroll-
ment followed and more teachers were needed.
In 1908, the four year course was approved.
There were six graduates in the first class
but just one in the class of 1903, Hazel Schenclc,
now Mrs. Lamont Bixler. The largest Ken Hi
enrollment was in 1932 when there were 1539
students in the four upper grades. In 1949-50,
there are 1050 in the senior high proper-tenth,
eleventh, and twelfth grades. As the numbers
grew, larger quarters were necessary. From the
Walnut Street building the high school was moved
to the Flynn building on Ninth Street, and from
The Class of 1901 called the
Walnut Street Building their
there, in 1908, to the new high school building on
Fourth Avenue. Soon this building became too
small and plans were made for the erection, in
1913, of the present high school building on
Ridge Avenue. A new wing was added to this
building in 1924 and 1925.
The high school began with one instructor
who served as teacher and principal. In the year
1949-1950 there are fifty-two regular teachers, the
superintendent of schools, the high school prin-
cipal, assistant principal, and dean of girls. This
larger faculty is necessary because of the large
number of students and because of the several
courses of study and the many subjects offered.
In the first years the subjects were academic, large-
ly college preparatory. Today Ken Hi offers the
following courses: academic, general, commercial,
distributive education, and vocational.
Many other changes and improvements have
been evidenced through the years. Among these
is consolidation with Parnassus. On May 20, 1930,
citizens voted to consolidate into a single com-
munity. Teaching staffs Were also consolidated
and in September, 1931, the two high schools
became one, the old Parnassus High building be-
came a junior high building. Vocational train-
ing began in the Ridge Avenue building but, when
more space was needed, that department was
moved to the Second Ward building. Later the
W. P. A. building on Stevenson Boulevard was
acquired for shop work. Again in the summer of
1948 another change was made-the junior high
was moved from the Ridge Avenue building to the
Fourth Avenue building and vocational classes
were brought back to Ridge Avenue.
Extra-curricular activities have played an im-
portant part in the life of Ken Hi. The begin-
nings were back in the year 1899-1900 when Friday
afternoons were given over to musical and liter-
ary programs. Now practically all extra-curricular
activities, except athletics, are regulated by the
Board of Activities. Classes, clubs, and musical
organizations are numerous and diversified so that
most students can belong to an organization which
helps them to develop their special hobbies and
talents. All of the activities of these groups are
part of the Taleoken record.
New Kensington citizens have always been
actively interested in the high school sports pro-
gram and have supported it loyally. Football and
basketball have been major sports with baseball,
track and field, cross country, tennis, and golf
classed as minor sports. The aim has been to
make it possible for a larger number of boys to
participate in sports. In 1945, Ken Hi was a
contender for the VJ. P. I. A. L. football cham-
pionship but the team was defeated by Donora.
In 1946 Ken Hi gridders won the W. P. I. A. L.
double AA championship by amassing the largest
number of points. A memorable occasion for
Ken Hi was that Thanksgiving Day in 1947 when
the Ken Hi boys, coached by Mr. Fletcher, won
the "AA" championship by defeating Har-Brack
28-0 at Forbes Field. Long before football came
to the fore we had been making an enviable record
in basketball. In 1930 and 1934 Ken Hi won the
W. P. I. A. L. basketball championship. With
Mr. Glock,s coaching the boys participated in the
playoffs at the stadium in 1931, 1932, 1933, 1937,
1940, 1944. Mr. Slosky's boys also participated in
the 1949 playoffs but were defeated by Rankin
in the first round. In 1939 Ken Hi's baseball team
was entered in the W. P. I. A. L. section com-
petition, winning one game and losing seven.
In 1947 they won the first round of the non-
sectional championship but were defeated in the
second round. In 1948 Ken Hi, coached by Mr.
Dunn, won eight games and lost three, thus win-
ning the sectional W. P. I. A. L. championship but
was defeated in the semi-final round of playoffs.
In 1941, Ken Hi racket boys, with Mr. Vorlage
as coach, won the W. P. I. A. L. championship and
in 1946 Elmer Stevens won the runner-up position
in W. P. I. A. L. playoffs. He also participated in
the Harvard cup matches but was eliminated in
the second match. Not so impressive is our record
in golf, track, and cross country. Nevertheless, the
latter two sports, with Mr. Chegwidden as coach,
are attracting more boys and their records are
improving each season.
The Class of 1950 will appear in
this formation on Commence- 1
One of the most interesting pictures to come to the attention
of the Taleoken Staff is that above-ground breaking for the New
Kensington High School building now in use. Pictured are the
Board of School Directors in l9l3 along with their children Who
would soon be Ken Hi students. These men foresaw a great future
for the high school. Today's Board of School Directors foppositej
are also men of vision and foresight who are, even now, planning
the beginning of the next Hfty years.

Board of Education
Seated: Mr. Herrington, Mr. Kronkoski, Mr. Blackburn, Dr. Vonderheid, Mr. Patterson, Mr.
Kell-er, Mr. Little.
Standing: Mr. McKean, Miss Mazur, Dr. Chapman.
The Board of School Directors is comprised of a group of civic-minded men
not too well known to the students of Ken Hi. These men, elected by the citizens
of Ken Kensington, devote much of their time to the affairs of our school. They
have worked vigorously ironing out the problems involving the interest and wel-
fare of the student body. They also take interest in our athletic and social affairs.
We are indeed indebted to these men. We, the fiftieth year graduating class,
consider ourselves very fortunate and we wish to express our deep gratitude to the
directors who made our last year one not to be forgotten.
The members of the board are Dr. C. G. Vonderheid, Jr., president, Mr.
Ralph M. Little, Jr., vice-president, Mr. James C. Patterson, Jr., treasurer, Mr.
Frank E. Kronkoski, Mr. E. H. Blackburn, Mr. Oren Herrington, and Mr. Charles
W. Keller. Dr. E. T. Chapman is superintendent of schools, Miss Veronica Mazur
is secretary, and Mr. Frank W. McKean is solicitor.

f f ,
Have you ever watchecl a passenger train ar-
riving at a station and wondered about the clestin-
ation of the people alighting from the train as
they wandered off in various directions? Have
you ever watched a Ken High graduating class at
commencement time when each member leaves the
stage, diploma in hancl - marching away to his
parents, his friends, and his future? That is what
you will be doing on May 25. The future belongs
to you. May you have the health, happiness and
good fortune you so richly deserve.
-H. B. Weaver
and Director of the Vocational School
To you, the graduates of 1950, it is my sin-
cere hope that whenever you can, wherever you
go, you will hold high the Ken Hi banner.
Let all those with whom you come in contact
know that your ideal has been and always will be
-sound scholarship coupled with a capacity for
further learning and thoroughness as a basis for
service and leadership.

above, which was graduated in 1901. Each had taken the two year
academic course and almost the same subjects. The fiftieth class,
that of June 1950, numbers three hundred forty students graduating,
after four years study, from five courses each including required and
elective subjects. To the right is a 1949-50 class in geography, one
of the subjects offered in recent years.

The past four years at Ken Hi will never be forgotten by the class of 1950. It seems like
yesterday when a few of us arrived at Ken Hi in our freshman year. In 1948 we had new-comers
from Parnassus and we found ourselves enthusiastically preparing for the Sophomore Hop. The
following year students arrived from Stewart and we worked together selling candy and magazines
in order to finance the Prom, an all year task.
At last our senior year came. We, the class of 1950, were honored being the fiftieth grad-
uating class. Many things were in store for us. Anniversary committees were chosen, including
some seniors, for such events as Alumni Night, the Alumni Dance, and the pageant in the spring.
But reminiscing about our senior year, we can remember that the first week of school we received
our first order of senior rings. Next, we had class elections. After the campaign speeches were over
and the votes counted, the finals brought in Joseph Giordano, president, Richard Wolfe, vice
president, John Kraft, secretary, and Glenn Timmins, treasurer. Our sponsors, Miss Patterson,
Miss Taylor, and Mrs. Klinke, guided us skillfully through a maze of senior pictures, com-
mencement announcements, name cards and Taleokens. The special senior assemblies and exams
gave many of us relief from classes. Plans were being made for Class Day and the Senior Private.
During the months of February and March practices were held every night in room 105 for the
senior class play. This year the senior class presented "Ladies of the Jury" under the direction of
Mrs. Klinke. The last day for seniors had arrived and Taleoken Day, the long-awaited day.
The memories of four years at Ken Hi will never be forgotten as we leave our best years behind us.

In recent years the most profitable way of making money proved to be the selling of candy and
magazines. This year 160 students participated in these sales which lasted from September until
the Christmas vacation. The sale of magazines exceeded those of last year by quite a margin al-
though the candy sales didnlt amount to so much. Much credit for these sales must be given to
Mrs. Wackenhut and Mrs. Hatter. Mr. Burnett is the juniors' financier.
As the end of November approached we saw Mr. Menk in his annual state of hair pulling
as the date for the Junior dance drew near. In previous years this dance had been called the Harvest
Ball but due to the late date of the dance this year, it was called the "Snowball,', and with the ad-
ditional attraction of crowning a king, Bob Shepard, and queen, Ellen Lee Toohey, it proved to
be a successful venture. And here we leave the activities of the Junior Class of 1949-1950 while

Our Sophomore Class has come a long way and accomplished much since last fall when we
entered Ken Hi. As we walked through the building with the other students we felt strange and
out of place. The noisy, crowded halls were new to us and it toolc some time to become accustomed
to them. With the help of the teachers and upperclassmen we soon felt that we belonged and in no
time at all we were participating in the many school activities.
Our first major event was the election of class officers and members to the Board of Activi-
ties. The enthusiastic campaign speeches help ed us to overcome the timidity we had felt at the
beginning of the year. Although other dances were held at Ken Hi, to us the Sophomore Hop was
the most important. In order to raise funds for our dance we sold homemade candy. The
boys, as well as the girls, contributed candy and the sales were a huge success. Committees were
busy planning the dance and we called it Cupids Whirl. To the Sophomores it was the perfect
dance and we hope every one enjoyed it as we did.
So ends our Sophomore year at Ken I-li but we know that we shall never forget it. We
know our school better and are looking forward to our junior and senior years.

KEN TON IAN
Our school paper is published every two
weeks during the school term by the students in
the journalism class. The student journalists are
under the supervision of Miss Russell who is in
charge of the paper and sees to it that the re-
porters keep up to date with editorials, jokes, fea-
tures, and happenings in the field of sports and
news. The journalists are divided into different
sections with editors for each section who are in
charge of certain pages of the paper. The edi-
tors' responsibility is to see that the work is done
completely, accurately, and on time. The work is
then checked and typed before it is sent to the
printer. Two sections of the paper are reserved
for the junior high schools which have their own
reporters who cover the news. The editor-in-chief
of the Kentonian is Howard Wiley.
Every spring, the Handbook Staff, under the
supervision of Miss Owen, goes to work on the
book to be used the following year. This book
is composed of information concerning the pro-
cedure used when a student is absent or tardy
and wishes to obtain a readmission slip, and a
host of other important things to do. This handy
little book, given to all students during admission
time each year, also contains the school calendar,
the social calendar, scores from previous year's
sports activities, school cheers and songs, and a
reading list which tells which books may be read
for book reports. This yearls staff, wich Mar-
garet Ann McCabe as editor-in-chief, started work
last spring and published, with the school board as
Hnanciers, the very attractive little 'Qgolden an-
BOARD OF ACTIVITIES
A11 of our students have enjoyed the assem-
blies and speakers brought to us by the Board of
Activities. The Board, under the very capable
direction of Mr. Miller, assistant high school prin-
cipal, is responsible for the Friendship dance
which is held at the beginning of every school
year to help students become better acquainted.
Another activity sponsored by this organization
is a Career Conference Night, which enables stu-
dents of various neighboring schools, as well as
Ken Hi students, to meet representatives of some
fifty colleges and also representatives from busi-
ness and industry. The Board also entertained at
a banquet which brought the sponsors and repre-
sentatives of the clubs and organizations of Ken
Hi together. Special guests at this dinner were
the members of the retiring and incoming School
Board. An excellent opportunity for student par-
ticipation in school government is also made pos-
sible by the Board. The concession stand at foot-
ball and basketball games is also under the super-
vision of the Board.

Election to the National Honor Society is the
greatest scholastic honor presented to students of
Ken Hi. The members are chosen on the basis
of their presenting: Scholarship, Character, Lead-
ership, and Service during their years at Ken Hi.
The group is selected by senior section room teach-
ers and Mr. Weaver, Miss Boucher, and Miss
Eiges, from names turned into the council by fac-
ulty members. The group is made up of about
fifteen per cent of the top ranking students of the
senior class. A few are elected at the end of the
junior year to carry the organization into the fol-
lowing school year. Mr. Kordes is the organiza-
tion's sponsor and Miss Walker is treasurer. Emer-
son Heilman, president, Margaret McCabe, vice-
president, and Helen Keczmer, secretary, served as
officers during the first semester.

The College Club, capably supervised by Miss
Eiges and Mr. Keiser, endeavors to help its mem-
bers choose the schools they will attend and the
courses which they wish to take. On several days
during the school year the senior members gather
in 401 where they take various scholastic, apti-
tude, and high school achievement tests. These
tests serve the dual purpose of familiarizing the
pupil with long, grueling college examinations and
aid the Guidance Office in choosing those stu-
dents who qualify to participate in the competi-
tive National Honor Society and Pennsylvania
State Scholarship tests. Each year a Career Con-
ference Night is held in conjunction with the
Board of Activities and the guidance department
which many representatives from college and bus-
iness establishments attend in order to talk with
the students and their parents. These annual con-
ferences not only help the college bound student
in choosing his college but also help those who
have immediate plans for entering the business

The German Club, a new organization, is
under the capable sponsorship of Mr. Ringhoffer.
Every student taking German is welcomed into
the club and, after completing two years of Ger-
man, the student retains his membership during
his senior year even though he is no longer taking
German. The purpose of the club is to provide
social functions at which the students can use
their knowledge of German on a conversational
level-with plenty of fun, of course, to justify
the official name of the club-Die Gemuetlichen,
which means "The Jolly Onesf' In good time the
club hopes to build up an album of recorded group
singing, Gespraech fconversationj, and Gesch-
waetz fgossipj for which we get together. There
is an annual picnic planned before the close of
school in May.

The Tri-Hi-Y is one of the oldest organiza-
tions of the school. Its membership is open to
any girl in the senior class who can fulfill the club
requirements and subscribe to its purpose. The
informal initiation is held in the fall. The Tri-
Hi-Y has been quite active this year. The Sock
Dance was one of the most successful events of the
fall season. Selling name cards proved to be a
profitable venture for the girls. The Shamrock
Ball is to be an important event in March. The
Mother-Daughter banquet is a social event to
which every Tri-Hi-Y girl looks forward. Mrs.
Potter is the new sponsor of the club. At the
request of the Lions Club, the March of Dimes
tag day brought the Tri-I-Ii-Y girls very promi-
nently on the streets with their coin boxes.

The Junior Tri-Hi-Y, under the guidance
of Miss Boucher, is one of the largest organiza-
tions in Ken Hi. This year the informal initiation
was changed from the ordeal in school to a scaven-
ger hunt in the evening followed by various stunts
done by the initiates. The impressive candle light
service in the Ken Hi gym is the most inspiring
formal initiation of any organization in school. A
candy-cookie day sale and a dance are projects
the juniors have planned for spring. The girls
hope these events will be financially profitable so
that senior girls can be sent to the summer con-
ference which was held last year at Slippery Rock
College. Girls from southwestern Pennsylvania
attended and they received training and inspira-
tion to carry out finer activities in the Senior

Ken Hi's fiftieth year marks the first full year
of operation for the school's newest club, the Key
Club. Although not an actual part of Kiwanis,
it is an international club sponsored by the Ki-
wanians. The local chapter was chartered late in
the 1948-49 school year by the New Kensington
Kiwanis Club working with Mr. Vorlage who is
the adviser. This club was organized as a service
club to the school and community and has been
operating as such. Before Christmas the members
aided a community project by gathering toys for
the needy children. At a dance, sponsored by
the Key Club, the first basketball queen of Ken
Hi was crowned. "We Build," the motto of the
club, is exactly what the members are doing. First
semester officers were George Welsh, president,
Robert Hall, secretary, and Thomas Berlinski,

The Hi-Y, sponsored by Mr. Apel, has sought
to keep up with its purpose of "creating, maintain-
ing, and extending the high standards of Christian
character throughout the school and the com-
munity." These organized youth are supported by
the local Y. M. C. A. and they have their initia-
tions in September and again in April. This is a
riotous event greeted by cheers and urging on,s by
the on-lookers. The members of the club decor-
ated the Christmas tree, which stands on the land-
ing of the main stairs, again this year, adding the
usual just right touch of holiday atmosphere. This
organization holds forth to the young men of the
school they deem eligible for the club the oppor-
tunity of greater fellowship with those of their
own age, creating possible life-long friendships.

The Red Cross Club is under the supervision
of Miss Mathison. The purpose of the club is to
give those students who are eager to be of service
to others an ample opportunity to engage in char-
itable work. All sophomores, juniors, and seniors
are eligible for membership in the Senior Club, but
only a limited number are voted into the organi-
zation. Elections are held at the beginning of the
year and one boy and girl are chosen to represent
each section room. Their activities consist of bi-
monthly meetings, an annual radio program and
such worthy projects as knitting afghans for ref-
ugees, filling Christmas boxes, and providing dolls
at Christmas for under-privileged children. Some-
times the members receive "thank you" notes from
children who are receivers of the gifts. These
small tokens of appreciation encourage all those

This is the fourth year for the Home Econo-
mics Club to be affiliated with the State and Na-
tional Future Homemakers of America. This or-
ganization is sponsored by Miss Olmer and Mrs.
Potter and it is open to any junior or senior girl
enrolled in cooking or sewing classes. This club
serves as an opportunity to help develop one's
knowledge in the field of homemaking. The
motto, "Toward New Horizons," expresses the
purpose of this organization-"learning to live
better today in order that our lives and those of
our families may be better tomorrowf, Among the
social activities of the club are an annual spring
fashion show and a picnic in the spring. Each
year a delegate is chosen to attend the all-county
and state conventions in April.

The Attendance Staff is an honorary group
, but it is not a social organization. This year's staff
is composed of junior and senior girls who are
willing to devote a period each day to helping in
, the dean's office. Their duties include making
3 up each day from the section room lists an ab-
! sentee sheet, then checking attendance each per-
iod, and looking up telephone numbers. They
must also keep track of those who have been
excused, consult the files to check schedule cards
to see if John Jones has study hall or gym the
third period. This year the Attendance Staff is
made up of the following girls: Rose Marie Bar-
' ham, Frances Davidson, Beverly Mikesell, Lois
N Yeager, Virginia Sroka, Georgina Harchuck.
Every year a member of the Attendance Staff is
invited to attend the Board of Activities banquet
with Miss Boucher. This year Lois Yeager repre-
sented the Attendance Staff on this occasion.
The Student Bank was ogranized for the pur-
pose of handling the business transactions of the
school. Organizations, classes, section rooms, stu-
dents, and teachers are benefited by it. Commer-
cial students, through the recommendation of their
teachers, are chosen in their junior year by Mr.
Vorlage to work in the bank. The Bank Staff sells
candy to secure funds for new machines for the
business machine class. Supplies are also sold for
the use of students. The staff consists of three
tellers, Jenice Heflin, Jean Fiscus, and Lois Coul-
son, a checkwriter, Suzanne Noble, a bookkeeper,
Mary Louise Bickert, a ledger clerk, Phyllis
Beatty, two auditors, Mary Ann Konazeski and
Nora Lee Bailingg school activities, Joy Heplerg
general yearbook, Alyce Fennellg and a messenger,
Ed Sokulsky. Mr. Vorlage teaches his staff to be
exact and assists them in being efficient in hand-
ling the financial matters of our school.

The Monitors are the boys you see at every
busy corner in the halls. They keep everyone or-
derly while changing classes and assist at fire
drills. Also the Monitors marshall teachers and
students to assemblies. Miss Rosemarie Pascaretta
has proved herself a very capable sponsor, having
made many improvements in the club during her
initial year as the faculty sponsor. The club is
composed of twelve junior and senior boys who
are elected every spring by the members of the
organization. Although the services of the Moni-
tors are the dominant reasons for the club, they
also hold a dance every year which is known as the
"Srotinom Llabf' The proceeds from this dance
are used to buy a pin for each member of the

Miss Ewing, our librarian, and her staff of
four student assistants are ever alert to respond to -
our requests for help. The library on the third
floor contains about 5,000 books, including refer-
ence works, supplementary texts, and recreational
reading. The library is open to all students six
periods a day, providing they have a permit. After
school and in the morning one does not need a
permit. Students may receive the permits from
their subject teachers. A fine of two cents per day
is charged for each two-week book kept after the
date on which it is due and five cents for each
overnight book. The books are arranged so it
will be easy for the students to find the books they
are looking for. We like to go to the library not
only for the usual library purposes but to see what
new plant Miss Ewing has added to her window

Through the diligent planning of Mr. Jeffer-
son, this organization brings forty-five minutes of
relaxation and motivated learning to weary class
students by means of the projection of the latest
educational movies. The boys are taught how to
operate both sound and silent projectors and also
to operate the public address system for school as-
semblies. The training which the boys get in using
all of the latest audio and visual educational aids
enables them to learn much about movie projec-
tion and sound systems which may be useful in
the future. The equipment at Ken Hi includes
sound and silent projectors, slide projectors of
various sizes, the public address system, and wire
recorders. The staff also takes care of stage prop-
erties and floodlights. The staff, which has a
membership of twenty-five to thirty boys, is an-
other of Ken Hi,s service organizations.

The Junior Town Meeting, sponsored by Miss
Armstrong of the Fourth Avenue Junior High,
has sophomore and junior members this year. One
of its main purposes is to further the interest of
its members in current problems. The club had
a very active year. In addition to several radio
programs, groups of students presented several
panel discussions on such subjects as, Q'How to
Procure and Keep Better Teachers," "Farm Subsi-
diesf, Q'Admission of Hawaii and Alaska to State-
hoodf' These discussions were presented before
several outside groups including the Kiwanis Club,
Young Adults of the Parnassus Presbyterian
Church, Mt. Vernon Parent-Teachers Association,
and the Young Judeans. The highlight of the
year was an invitation for a panel discussion at the
Board of Activities banquet on the question, "Is
the United States Drifting Toward Socialism."

The Commercial Club is composed of senior
and junior students who take the commercial
course. At the end of their junior year they are
chosen by the commercial faculty to become mem-
bers of the club. The sponsor of the club is Mr.
Keiser. There are two meetings held monthly-
one business, and the other social. At these busi-
ness meetings representatives from the business
world are brought before the group to acquaint
the students with actual business conditions and
new methods of doing things in the business
world. Some of the activities that the club partici-
pates in are a tea dance and pretzel day. A dinner
for members only is held for the members to get
acquainted. Candy is sold to buy machines for
the use in the office machine practice class. They

The D. E. Club, which is open only to mem-
bers of the Distributive Education Course, is spon-
sored by Mr. Pfeiffer. The purposes of the club
are to promote the social welfare of the members
and better salesmanship. As a whole, they con-
structively criticize other sales personnel in whose
particular line they are interested. They have set
as their goal improvement in speech and personal
appearance, and as sales persons, a better knowl-
edge of their stock in merchandise. Once a month
they have a business meeting and at least one
social get-together. In April they make their
annual excursion to Pittsburgh observing "behind
the scenes operation" of a large, downtown store.
The second semester in the main hall, they set up
a display case, showing their ability in window

At the beginning of the year try-outs are
held and those who show dramatic ability are
elected to membership in the Dramatic Club. In
November the club presented Hildegard Dolson's,
"We Shook the Family Tree" at the Main Street
auditorium. It was hailed a great success by the
audience. As part of their annual treat, the club
traveled to the Nixon in Pittsburgh to see NAS
You Like It," starring Kathryn Hepburn. The
remaining part of the year the members were kept
busy working on radio programs, assemblies, or-
iginal skits for initiation, and small plays pre-
sented monthly at their evening meetings. Their
coveted pin is earned by these presentations and
can be worn only by those who earn it. Their
last social gathering of the year is a picnic. The
Dramatic Club is under the capable sponsorship
of Mrs. Alice Klinke.

The Geography Club, organized by its spon-

lished for senior geography class students who
have an active interest in geography. Member-
ship cards are issued to members signifying that
they are junior members of the Geography Club
of Western Pennsylvania and the National Coun-
cil of Geography Teachers. With Regina Siuta
as the club's popular program chairman they have
succeeded in accomplishing many worth-while ac-
tivities. One very important and worthy project
undertaken was having each of the five classes
sponsor a Care package for needy families in
Europe. In addition to learning the geographical
status of other countries from text books they had
pen pals with whom they communicated, thus
learning more intimately about other lands and
people. The Ken I-li Geography Club is a purely

The Camera Club has come a long way since
it was first organized two years ago. Under the
sponsorship of Miss Janet Mathison it has become
a very active club. The purpose of this club is
to give those students who know little about
photography a chance to learn. Among the events
of the Camera Club was the "Shutter Flutter
Hop." At this time, Janet Link and Dick Venetta
were chosen king and queen. A very active mem-
ber of the club is Lee Guida. She takes many pic-
tures for the yearbook besides action shots around
the school. The members also made miniature
graduation pictures for the students of the senior
class. In the spring the members plan two trips.
One trip is usually to Pittsburgh taking pictures
of the different interesting sights.

The junior and senior girls who make up
the Girls' Leaders Club show marked ability in
physical education and an average of C or better
in all other subjects. The duty of the girls is to
assist instructors of the Department of Physical
Education. These girls who referee games in gym
classes, check gym equipment, check locker rooms,
etc., must show definite traits of leadership. In-
cluded in such are dependability, iniative, willing-
ness, and good sportsmanship. By this means, the
club helps to form and promote general leader-
ship and good sportsmanship. Tournaments and
dances are a few of the social affairs which add
to the attraction of the club. Miss Rosemarie Pas-
caretta has the fervent enthusiasm to hold the
club to its highest purposes.

The Girls' Chorus is under the sponsorship
of Mrs. Betty Jo Wareham. This group of soph-
omore, junior, and senior girls was organized last
year to give a larger number of girls an oppor-
tunity for further training in chorus work. The
girls meet every Wednesday evening after school,
so we know they are really interested in music.
Last year,s group numbered about twenty-Hve but
now the membership has increased to sixty-five.
At the Christmas assembly held in the gym the
group presented several excellent groups of carols
as part of the Christmas pageant. They will par-
ticipate in the Spring Festival along with the Band,
Senior Choir, and Orchestra. This group also
functions efficiently under the student government
system. Each girl feels a definite responsibility for
the success of the organization.
The Choir is one of the largest and most
active organizations in the school. Under the di-
rection of Mrs. Betty Jo Wareham, .the Choir re-
hearses every morning in room 208. It is com-
posed of 110 carefully selected voices. During
the Yuletide Season, its activities include an as-
sembly, a radio program, Christmas carolling, and
singing at the bank. In the spring the Choir sings
for nearly every important school function. Top
on the list is the spring concert which is a joint
concert with the Band. They also have a part in
the anniversary pageant at the stadium. Besides
this, the Choir sang for Alumni Night, several
school assemblies, and radio programs. This or-
ganization made a trip to Vandergrift in an ex-
change assembly. The Choir is under the new
self-governing system, the purpose of which is to
promote voluntary co-operation and responsibility.

Our Band really has something to boast about this year. They have had the privilege of
being the first high school band in this valley to appear on television. The Band is one of the
most active organizations in the school. The Band. began their training at the New Kensington
Booster's Camp at Salisbury, Pennsylvania. Ar camp, they practiced drills which they used dur-
ing both the home and away football games. In the fall they performed for the Pittsburgh Steeler-
Detroit game at Forbes Field. The Ken Hi Band also helped make the Band Festival, sponsored by
the Dispatch, successful. Other bands which participated are Springdale, Har-Braclc, Arnold, Tar-
entum, Plum Township, East Deer and many others. On March Z, the Band played in the Alle-
gheny Band Festival in which five district bands appeared. They are Springdale, Har-Brack, Ar-
nold, and Tarentum. Later the Band with the Choir and Orchestra performed at our own Festi-
val at the High School. To wind up activities of this year, they played for Class Day, Commence-
ment, and last of all, they marched in the Memorial Day parade.

Five years ago a new organization, called the
Script and Score, was added to the many organ-
izations of Ken Hi. The primary purpose of the
club is to present a musical production which
would give the students with musical and drama-
tic ability an opportunity to display their talents.
At the beginning of the fall term Mrs. Ware-
ham, the new sponsor, along with the officers of
the club, chose the students who seemed to have
the best ability. Then in the early spring the mem-
bers of the club presented the operetta Tune In
which was heralded a great success, largely due to
Mrs. Wareham,s excellent directing. The names
of Betty Johnson and Bob Bloom were featured in
the leading roles. Each year the members journey
to Pittsburgh to see a musical production. Last
year the club saw Rigoletta by Verdi.

The Ken Hi Dance Band, originally called
the Kennsylvanians, is an active organization un-
der the direction of Mr. John Stephens, new mu-
sical director at Fourth Avenue Junior High. The
student leader is Vernon Bradley. This group is
comprised of lifteen boys. Miss Lucille Wright
who is director of music in the elementary schools,
plays the piano and gives much of her free time
to this group. These musicians give us a fine
array of talent at both student assemblies and
dances. Occasionally they play for outside organ-
izations. During the past year the band has re-
ceived many a compliment for the splendid work
done at the dances. They have decidedly come
a long way since last year, but they will become a
bigger and better band in the years to come. To
the seniors leaving we wish great success.

Here is another of the hard working
men who stays in the background when the
honors are passed out. He is known as The
Faculty Manager of Athletics. His job con-
sists of many parts. The first is to take care
of tickets for the games. He is also in
charge of keeping the books balanced and
making reports to the School Board of the
Athletic Department's financial status.
Director of Athletics
Here is the man who is responsible for
the fine schedules arranged for the Ken-Hi
athletic teams. This is a tiring and some-
times discouraging job which is very ably
handled by our Athletic Director. Mr.
Glock is the person who is always pushing
hard, hard enough to keep the athletic pro-
gram improving each year.

T ,The 1949-50 Cheerleader squad was made up of five members, three seniors
an ivo juniors: Margaret McCabe, Irene Pollack, Jayne I-Iockenberry, Janet Myers,
nd Nancy Noble. These girls deserve the admiration and praise of the entire
-e student body for their energetic cheering, both at the welcome pep rallies and at
all the games, at home and away. In their snappy red skirts, white sweaters and
caps to match, the squad introduced several new cheers throughout the season.
Last summer the Cheerleaders spent a week with the Band at the Boosters Camp at
Salisbury, where they put in long hours of hard practice learning new stunts and
routines, how to work in unison and in co-ordination with the Band. Cheerlead-
ing calls for a lot of energy, enthusiasm, and good humor which must be trans-
ferred to the crowd. Ar the close of the football season they were guests of the
School Board at a banquet given for the football team. During basketball season
they kept up their reputation of being able to call forth rousing support for our
teams. The Cheerleaders are under the sponsorship of Miss Pascaretta.

Mr. Jefferson, Mr. Fletcher, Mr. Dunn, Mr. Slosky.
Mr. William Jefferson is the custodian of equipment and heads the managing depart-
ment. His hard work is highlighted by the performance of his duties, as Ken-Hi teams are al-
ways well equipped.
Coach Don Fletcher, as head football coach, receives no admiration without deserving it.
Mr. Fletcher is considered one of the finest football coaches in the state and has lived up to his
reputation this year by developing an excellent team as the season progressed. Coach Fletcher is
rated tops by his players, the students, and people of New Kensington.
Coach A1 Dunn--is a capable assistant to Mr. Fletcher in assembling a football team. Mr.
Dunn is also a basketball Coach at Parnassus Junior High but his main interest is building a win-
ning baseball team for Ken-Hi. Mr. Dunn makes Ken-Hi a feared opponent on the diamond.
Coach Ken Sloslcy is a likeable energetic mentor who, when he isn,t directing varsity basket-
ball, also helps put together a football team. One of his chief duties as assistant football coach
is to scout the opponents. His good work in this field counts much toward winning.

' The varsity football squad, after losing practically all of last year's first
team, made a very fine showing. Considerable tribute should be and has been
paid to Coach Fletcher and his assistants-Mr. Jefferson, Mr. Dunn and Mr.
Sloskey--who worked hard with the team. After starting slowly, the team gradu-
ally built itself up until they beat Vandergrift and Har-Braclc to climax the season
and thus become one of the valley's leading football powers. The final record for
the "Red Raiders" was four wins, two ties, and two losses.

Junior Varsity Coach
The coach of the Jayvee squad is quite
a ball player himself. Coach George Veitch
starred for Wake Forest several years ago
and now is developing future stars in his
duties as coach of the Jayvee squad.
The coaching job is almost continuous
for Coach Slosky whoiis assistant football
coach and varsity basketball coach. ln his

Under the coaching of Mr. Slosky, the var-
sity basketball team displayed excellent training
and sportsmanship in 1949-1950. Winning four-
teen games while losing only six, the team re-
luctantly took second place behind Ford City in
Section I. Win or lose, the boys had a steady
backing by many loyal fans and school mates.
The underclassmen regretfully said goodby to
Hall, Timmins, and Crum, seniors on this year's
squad, while looking forward to next year.
Mr. Veitch's jayvee squad furnished some
excitement along with the varsity squad by com-
pleting a fair season with ten wins and nine
losses. There should be some good varsity ma-
terial for next year's team from this year's Jayvee
We may well be proud of our teams for
their good sportsmanship and loyalty. We are
looking forward to the 1950-1951 season, but will
scarcely find one so exciting as that just ended.

Ken Hi's baseball team, coached by Mr. Dunn of Parnassus Junior High
School, had another successful season. With an excellent record of eight wins
and two losses, the Kenmen reluctantly took second place behind Har-Brack, which
incidentally was the only team in the circuit that beat them. If the team had
copped the sectional flag, it would have been its third in succession.

The 1949 track team, coached by Mr. Chegwidden, participated in seven
track meets, three of which were wins over Jeannette, Plum Township, and Turtle
Creek, one triangle meet, and the County Meet at Greensburg. The team as a
whole scored 339W points while Jim Turner headed the list for Ken Hi with
Cross Country 1950
Although Coach Chegwiddenis cross-country team has been at Ken Hi
for only three years, they made a fine showing for the 1950 season. Their record
of four wins and four defeats was the best season yet seen at Ken Hi for cross-
country. They were victorious over Shadyside, Wilkinsburg, Brentwood, and Kit-
tanning, while dropping meets to Connelsville, Mt. Lebanon, Central Catholic,
Penn Township. V

Although the boys did not win them all, they improved greatly as the season prog-

matches from Ken Hi. Aside from Bryant Mason and John Iverson, the entire
